Arranging a Funeral

It may be difficult to know where to begin when arranging a funeral. However, as your chosen funeral directors in West Cumbria, we’d like you to know that we are here to help and advise you from start to finish. At Adams Read & Hocking, we endeavour to provide the bereaved with a fair and comprehensive overview of our services – from what we can provide to the friendly advice we can give whilst arranging a funeral.

The first step is to visit you in your own home or organise for you to visit us in our family room, if you would prefer. During our meeting, we’ll discuss what type of funeral you would like to hold for your loved one, and how you think they would like to be remembered.

With your consent, we’ll then go on to organise all aspects of a funeral. From the newspaper notices to flowers, receptions, music etc – all carried out in an efficient, dignified and caring manner.
